Orlando-Broken Speech Team Selection Process


Broken Speech Poetry Slam
Stardust Video & Coffee
1842 Winter Park Rd
Orlando, FL 32803
every Thursday @ 9:30pm except Thanksgiving and any other major holiday that falls on a Thursday

To make Team Orlando, you must accrue enough points to be in the top 9 by April 4, 2008 to guarantee your spot in the Broken Speech Grand Slam and then place in the top four at the Grand Slam to be invited to join Team Orlando. In the event any of the top four are unable to remain on the team, we will fill that empty slot with the next qualified poet based on her standing at the Grand Slam.

Points are awarded on a modified scale where you get more points for beating more poets at a Broken Speech Poetry Slam (i.e. place first in a slam of 9 poets, you get 8 points).

Slammasters from other venues and poets under the age of 21 (18 if the host city of that year's NPS allows underage poets to compete) are not eligible to be on Team Orlando, but are more than welcome to slam.
